The Mean Monday Cloud

I've had a cloudy head today, just a tiny headache really, maybe some caffeine will rid me of that... a bit later. Do you ever just feel like your head is spinning from so much to think and do? Probably all part of my self-diagnosed A.D.D., but I just can't seem to concentrate much on the things I need to do most. Feels like the world is on 'high-spin' cycle and I need it to slow down just enough for me to bail. That's right, jump off and take a backseat so I can watch from afar for a while. The hustle and bustle never looks as exasperating that way. If you've ever been extremely far up in the floors of a tall building, or atop a large structure, looking down and observing as the rest of the world goes about their business, it's a peaceful feeling... like you're removed from it... sort of. Like the part of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where they're looking down on the city from a window of a skyscraper, stating that the city looks so peaceful from up there, it's true. Everything looks like busy ants... I'm thinking more of a distance like the moon, maybe kicking back in a recliner, maybe some of that hot cocoa i'm always blabbing about, listening to some relaxing music or perhaps bouncing around in my astronaut suit enjoying the merits of being 'weightless' (that's a good one)... and simply seeing the earth from the moon, getting a distorted image perhaps of the earth being peaceful and quiet... the buzzing is just getting to me. I feel like I have too many things to do and I can't stop freaking long enough to concentrate and take it 'one at a time'. Hopefully, someone understands what I'm trying to convey... I know it sounds a bit looney. That's alright, the world needs lunatics like me too.

On the subject of Mondays then, since it is still Monday in my little world, I have to share with you this photo sent to me by a friend (Hello Kim). I found this to be quite humorous, and it sums up how I usually feel on Mondays... and gives me some way of excusing myself if I happen to hide under my covers and miss that day of the week altogether... So I give you, "The Mean Monday Cloud" She sent it to me, including the following caption:

WHEN YOU SEE THIS
ON YOUR WAY OUT THE DOOR IN THE MORNING ...
Go back in and have another cup of coffee.
It is probably not going to be a good day!


My sincere wishes to you all to have a glorious, cloud-free week :) xo, Aunt Jackie

*Oh, and from the previous clips, I thought anyone who hasn't seen "A Christmas Story", should go and check it out. Rent it, watch it on T.V., no worries, it will be everywhere at some point during the holiday season. But I highly recommend that you at least watch it once... Most of you will be suckered into watching it many more than that. Click Here to check out the movie, "A Christmas Story". Nana forced the grandkids to watch it over the weekend, and that's exactly why I have so many fond childhood memories of my sister-she always knows just how to brainwash us "kids". :)

Hot chocolate, relaxing, listening to music, acting a bit looney...all are good remedies for chilling out from the everyday hustle and bustle.


Love that cloud pic!! Good one. :)

I don't peer into the clouds any more. I usually see really perverted stuff and can't stop laughing.

Ahhh Chelly--perfect remedies. Unfortunately, i'm always acting a bit looney so I guess I shouldn't be stressing at all!! hehe
Hammer, I don't think it's just you, but I just can't look away :) lol
